As you are aware Mr. President both sides are still maneuvering for position, only submarine actions occurred today.

At this time we still expect additional clashes over the coming days as the year closes out. All Carriers are still in the Fight and the USS Saratoga has now joined the main force after repairs in Sydney.....

Looks like you got some good attrition of his carrier aircraft over the last few days. Looking forward to the big show ....

This was historically the point when most of the surface knife fights and serious carrier battle occurred. It appears like some major elements of his KB are not engaged.

If my Intel is correct, he has brought all that he left. Below is the list of ships sunk thorough December 31st 1924.

As you are aware Mr. President both Carrier Fleets have engaged and we expect the battle to continue today. It appears that his submarines are far more effective than we anticipated.

All Carriers are still in the Fight except the Saratoga. Please be aware enemy surface forces are closing in on Tulagi at this time. Our Fast Battleship forces and our CVE Force are covering this landings. We have also alerted our Marine Air Wings for the expected clash.....

Well you hurt him, even if the results are not stellar.
Why no strike from KB? Were their planes attacking something else?

Yes, not a single torpedo attack to date in this clash.

There were a couple of very small strikes by the KB if you look above, but not a single mass attack. I think he may be out of aircraft that are ready to fly.

Nice! You put some serious hurt on his cruiser and destroyer strength and it looks like CVL Shoho went down.
Looks like Junyo and Hiyo got away without much damage but probably lost a lot of their aircraft.
Very compelling drama when both sides go "all -in" at the historic change of tide timeframe.

Southwest Pacific January 1st 1943 - Ring in the New Year

Mr. President it is my please to report to you that Japanese forces are now in full retreat around in this area and all their forces and heading north. At this time we suspect the Japanese were unaware that Admrial "Ching" Lee's fast Battleship forces did not sail with the carriers as they have on every other occasion.

While his forces were forced from the fight the damage they inflicted proved decisive in setup up the conditions for the victory today.

This last week will change the course of events for the free world......

Awesome follow-up!
Both sides will be licking their wounds for the next three months but when your ships come back on line the Allies will control the agenda in the Pacific!


Beaucoup Kudos!
